Williamsburg, NY - Chasidic Man Punched In Head In Random Attack; NYPD Says No Hate Crime

Williamsburg, NY - A Chasidic man standing outside with his young son talking to another man was punched in the back of the head, just one block from where a Chasidic child suffered a fractured nose after being shoved to the ground last week.

The incident took place at 6:40 PM on Friday night in front of 68 Throop Ave.  Police said that the 33 year old man was punched in the back of the head with a closed fist by an unidentified man who uttered a single word: blah.

Sources told VIN News that the incident was being investigated as a hate crime, a statement that was disputed an NYPD spokesperson who said that there was nothing about the incident that indicated it was racially motivated.

Surveillance footage obtained by VIN show the two shtreimel-clad men talking on the street as the suspect, dressed in a light colored hoodie and pants and dark shoes, approached from behind.

As previously on VIN News (http://bit.ly/2TXQT40), the NYPD has released footage of the suspect who attacked a nine year old boy last Sunday.  A $2,500 reward has been offered for any information leading to the capture of the suspect in that incident.

The NYPD is known for playing down these attacks; otherwise, those lazy overweight, pot-bellied cops would have more paperwork to do at the precinct.

It looks like in our community people get so excited to scream hate crime whenever they have a chance if someone rob a store not in the community it's a hate crime our leaders are hungry to make some excitement instead of working and delivering stuff that we really need like programs for schools and what ever is needed it's a good Pr to show how hard working they are by screaming. Not that all are not hate crimes but most are just criminals who do it to anyone anywhere.

This could only happen in a state run by anti semitic liberals. Who in their right mind could say this is not a hate crime? Pressure should be put on Deblasio to up this to a hate crime. The man is truly incompetent to run the city, he almost makes Dinkins look like a good mayor.

A climate of hate is not created overnight it takes a few years to percolate, In the years of Obum were Police officers safe? not at all, If the thin blue line is destroyed than the next victims are the Jews, This is how it is throughout history.
If the social fabric of a country gets torn asunder than people are at each others throat and the Jews are always the first victims.
This is what the filthy Obum created.

#9 points out correctly about breakdown of society . It continues with the current Democrats who openly call to confront their enemies. That does not necessarily mean that the perpetrator is a Democrat. It means the perpetrator has breathed in the societal breakdown that the Democrats have engendered.

What does this have to do with the president? This has to with the incompetency of the people running NYC. This is a clear black and white hate crime. Oh BTW whatever happened to the Black Lives Matter? Haven't heard from them since Obama left office. Good to see that race relations are so much better under Trump than they were under Obama

Two men vs one. Neither tried to defend themselves or fight the bum. It was a hate crime but a bigger crime that the two men did nothing but mumble. Time for some SELF-DEFENSE. Then you'll see less of these events.

Remember crime is falling, and crime that didn't occur against 711 would be a major crime

Who is we? The chasidic communities have been under attack for years, but no one reports attacks that way because when chasidim are attacked the reaction of many (including frum non-chareidim/chasidim) is, “Eh, those insular people deserve it.”

Have you noticed these attacks only occur in cities controlled by liberals? Of course the media doesn't report on these events.
